Fascination of Plants Day

Zbliża się szósta edycja międzynarodowej akcji ‘Fascynujący Dzień Roślin’ 2022 (FoPD 2022), która będzie odbywać się na całym świecie pod auspicjami Europejskiej Organizacji Nauk o Roślinach (European Plant Science Organisation – EPSO).

Celem tej akcji jest zaprezentowanie pracy osób zafascynowanych światem roślin, a także przekazanie przesłania, że wiedza o roślinach jest niezmiernie ważna dla rozwoju rolnictwa, ogrodnictwa i leśnictwa oraz zrównoważonego wytwarzania żywności. Znajomość świata roślin ma równie ważne znaczenie w produkcji wszelkich produktów pochodzenia roślinnego, takich jak papier, drewno, odczynniki chemiczne, energia, czy farmaceutyki. Bardzo ważnym przesłaniem akcji jest również wskazanie znaczenia roślin dla zachowania środowiska. Zapraszamy wszystkich do przyłączenia się do tej inicjatywy!
